stepfather/daughter songs?

i cant find an appropriate song to dance with my stepdad to at my wedding. my real dad hasnt been in my life and my mom remarried when i was 14, however, i never lived with them, i lived with my aunt...so we get along but were not "close". i dont want a cheesy daddys lil girl song or that brad paisley song. it has to be slow bc neither of us can dance hehe. i like unique, indie type songs...or jazz, or frank sinatra/dean martin type of music... if anyone has any suggestions for my picky a** please help!!!

    I danced to "I hope you dance" by Lee Ann Womack (spelling)

    Here are the lyrics. I thought it was so sweet and very appropriate.

    I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,

    You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,

    May you never take one single breath for granted,

    GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,

    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,

    Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens,

    Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,

    Never settle for the path of least resistance

    Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin',

    Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',

    Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,

    When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,

    Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

    I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

    (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,

    Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

    on wedding music central. com they have some suggestions for father/daughter dances...

    One of them is "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" by Elton John which may be appropriate,

    I also linked to this one - from the CD Yours Mine and Ours (same site - I've included a link below)... it has a very sweet sentiment...

    WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST: A tribute to stepparents & mentors, First Dance (Kimaya Seward)

    the first link below will take you to the site.
